Di Livio Jr banned for 5 months

Lorenzo Di Livio, son of former Italy international Angelo, has been given a five-month ban for failing a doping test while on loan at Ternana.

Di Livio tested positive for THC after the Serie B game between Vicenza and Ternana on May 6, and Italy’s Anti-Doping Court has suspended the 20-year-old until October 23.

The attacking midfielder has also been ordered to pay €378 in court costs.

THC is one of the substances found after the use of cannabis, while Di Livio Jr was considered one of Roma’s most promising youngsters.

His father [pictured, left], represented the likes of Juventus and Fiorentina in his playing career, notably winning the Champions League with the Bianconeri in 1996 and staying with the Viola after they were demoted to the fourth tier of Italian football in 2002.
